The End of St. Petersburg (PG) + Live Musical Accompaniment by HarmonieBand


1 October 2017
Cinema 1
Commissioned to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the October Revolution, The End of St Petersburg secured Vsevolod Pudovkin's place as one of the foremost Soviet film directors. His sophisticated analysis of the Revolution sits within a brilliant and dramatic reconstruction of the major events.

Paul Robinson’s compelling score has overt Russian leanings with the shadow of Shostakovitch not far behind the surface, together with arrangements from Red Army Ensemble material and Russian folk song.

USSR 1927 Dir Vsevolod Pudovkin  87 min
